Calling all bookworms! The seventh China Shanghai International Children’s Book Fair (CCBF) is headed back to town. The event will take place in Shanghai from November 15-17. CCBF is not only a leading copyright exchange hub for children’s books (ages 0 to 16 years), but it’s the perfect outlet to inspire school teachers, parents, children, book lovers, collectors, illustrators and translators.
This year, more than 60,000 new books from 70 countries and regions will be presented as part of a worldwide celebration of children’s reading. Not only can visitors buy a variety of original books but CCBF will offer 200 activities and events during the three-day event. You can even meet with your favorite writers, illustrators and translators.
Over 100 famous domestic and international writers and illustrators will attend this year's book fair. They will hold special lectures, book launches, sign autographs, host readers' meetings and so much more.
The Golden Pinwheel Illustration Exhibition will highlight a selection of 300 works from 50 emerging artists who submitted amazing entries to the Golden Pinwheel International Young Illustrators Competition. Your children will have a chance to participate too through onsite workshops, seminars and activities.
In addition, two very special events will be held: The CCBF Pop-Up Books Show and the Children's Books on Art, Architecture and Design. Don't miss them!
